My newest bookbinding class is open for registration! It’s a fun one that I’m really looking forward to, something a little different than I normally teach, but love making for myself.
“The Art & Craft of Tiny Books” is the title of the class, and it’s running this December – less than a month away!
A bit more about the class:
This two-day class explores 4 different mini book structures, each teaching different bookmaking skills.
We’ll re-purpose old books, use fancy papers, and bits and remnants from previous projects. There will be time to play with materials and personalize your set of books, making them perfect for gifting or keeping.
Everyone will leave with at least 4 finished mini books, but likely more as time permits.
When: Saturday December 1 – Sunday December 2, 10am – 5pm each day.
Where: CBBAG Bindery, 180 Shaw St., Toronto
For more information & to register, please see the CBBAG website here.
Things will be a bit different around Sprouts Press this Autumn. I’m taking a break from the One of a Kind Show, and using this time to participate in some of my favourite shows that I couldn’t over the last few years.
For example, BOUND Book Arts Fair! (previously held at OCAD, now at the Arts & Letters Club). As a student, this show was the first time I sold one of my handbound blank books and realized that I could, in fact, make some money as an artist. I remember spending hours making case-bound books to sell for a mere $20 each. I also remember the thrill of selling my first pieces – what joy!
I’d love for you to stop by and say Hi, and witness this new version of the Book Arts Fair (and at the gorgeous Arts & Letters Club!).
When: Sunday December 9, 2018. 11am – 5pm
Where: Arts & Letters Club, 14 Elm St., Toronto (near Yonge & Dundas)
